Find the Right Tape for the Results You Want

You work hard to make sure you’re picking the optimum solution for the entire job. In the plate mounting room you need to determine the right flexographic tape density for mounting the plate. On the press you need repeatable results so you don’t have to over-impress by the end of the run. And when you’re demounting after the press run you need to minimize worker strain and plate damage.

3M science can help. We offer the industry’s largest range of tape densities so you can find the perfect match for the lines and halftones of the job you’re working on, with the 3M™ Comply™ Adhesive System to virtually eliminate air bubbles. We also offer different adhesion levels to help with demounting when the run is over.

  • 1.

    Wide range of foam densities allows you to fine tune mounting tape selection.

  • 2.

    Repeatable print results prevent the need to over-impress during press runs.

  • 3.

    For L- and Pro-Series, easy plate demounting minimizes damage and replacement costs.


Flexographic Mounting Tape Density Considerations

When you require solid ink and crisp lines, choose a firm, high-density mounting tape. For halftone work where dot gain is a concern, a softer tape optimizes reproduction. To find the right flexographic tape for your needs, look for your preferred density.
